First-Year freshmen that will be commute to University of Lynchburg will be given a Resident Assistant (RA) and a residential community. The RAs will reach out to commuter students to invite them to residential events, for example Tasty Tate and Monthly Mont events. First-Year commuter students will also have access to the lounge spaces in first-year housing (Tate and Montgomery Hall).
Located on the terrace level of Bullard House (townhouse), the lounge is open to all commuter students between 6 a.m. and 12 midnight. This is a great place to study and relax with friends, and it’s within walking distance to Domino’s Pizza.
